Freddy Galvis: Heading to Japan
Galvis is expected to sign with the NPB's Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, Yahoo Japan reports.
While Galvis has never been confused for a star, he's better than most players who head overseas. The 32-year-old has spent most of his career as a low-end regular and looked like he was still capable of that in 2021, as his .242/.302/.407 slash line was good for a career-best 90 wRC+, a perfectly adequate number for a shortstop. Given the uncertainty that comes with MLB's lockout, however, it's likely he saw a guaranteed deal in Japan as far more appealing than waiting out the labor strife stateside, especially as he wasn't necessarily guaranteed a big-league deal once the situation is eventually resolved....

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Slugs 14th homer
Galvis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-4 loss to the Marlins on Sunday.
Galvis took Miami starter Pablo Lopez deep in the second inning to get Philadelphia on the board but failed to contribute in his other at-bats. The 31-year-old concludes the season with a .242/.302/.407 slash line, 14 home runs, 53 runs and 40 RBI in 104 games between Philadelphia and Baltimore.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Remains out of lineup
Galvis isn't starting Thursday's game against Atlanta.

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Retreats to bench
Galvis isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: On bench Saturday
Galvis will sit Saturday against the Pirates.
Galvis has emerged as the Phillies' primary third baseman, moving ahead of Ronald Torreyes. He'll hit the bench Saturday after going hitless in two straight games. Torreyes will be rewarded with a start after hitting a pinch-hit homer in Friday's victory.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Taking over at third base
Galvis is starting at third base and batting sixth Friday against the Mets, marking his fourth start in the past five games.
Galvis has a .286/.359/.686 slash line with four homers, two doubles, six RBI and eight runs through 12 games in September, and he appears to have usurped Ronald Torreyes as the Phillies' primary third baseman. Galvis should remain a lineup regular down the stretch, especially if he continues to maintain a hot bat.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Three hits including homer
Galvis went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.
The 31-year-old went yard off of Alec Mills in the fourth inning, scoring Andrew McCutchen in the process. It was his 13th blast of the year. Since the start of the month, he has four homers and six RBI in 32 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Bound for bench
Galvis is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
Galvis started at three different infield spots -- second base, third base and shortstop -- across each of the past three contests, finishing 2-for-9 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs. His versatility and switch-hitting ability should afford him a handful of starts per week the rest of the season, but Galvis isn't expected to play on an everyday basis while all of Jean Segura, Ronald Torreyes and Didi Gregorius are healthy....

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Socks homer Sunday
Galvis went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Marlins.
Galvis blasted his 11th homer of the season with a two-run bomb off starter Elieser Hernandez in the fourth inning, but he also crossed home plate in extras when he scored the winning run following an RBI single from Odubel Herrera. The second baseman is only hitting .246 with a .718 OPS on the season, but he's gone 4-for-12 (.333) with two homers, three RBI, a double and four runs scored in four September games.... See More ...

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Activated from injured list
Galvis (quadriceps) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday.
Galvis is ready to go after missing just shy of two months with a strained quadriceps. He's not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays and is likely to serve as primarily a utility man down the stretch. When he gets into a game, it will be his first in a Phillies uniform since the end of the 2017 season but his 643rd overall, as he spent his first six major-league seasons with the team. Enyel De Los Santos, whom the Phillies acquired for Galvis in a trade with the Padres back in December of 2017, was optioned to clear a spot for him on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Begins rehab assignment
Galvis (quadriceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Galvis was acquired in a trade with the Orioles at the deadline while still battling a strained right quadriceps, an issue he suffered back in late June. The length of his absence means he'll likely need more than just a game or two in the minors before he's cleared to return, though it's not yet clear exactly when the Phillies intend to activate him....

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Takes live BP
Galvis (quadriceps) took live batting practice off rehabbing Phillies starter Zach Eflin (kneecap) on Sunday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
While recovering from the right quad strain he sustained June 26 as a member of the Orioles, Galvis has yet to make an appearance for his new organization since being acquired ahead of the July 30 trade deadline. Galvis' ability to take swings on the field Sunday is a good sign, but he'll still need to complete a multi-game rehab assignment in the minors before the Phillies bring him back from the 10-day injured list....

Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Headed back to Philly
Galvis (quadriceps) was traded from the Orioles to the Phillies on Friday for Tyler Burch, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
He has been on the injured list but was reportedly nearing a rehab assignment prior to this trade. Once fully healthy, Galvis will be an option to spell Didi Gregorius, Jean Segura and Alec Bohm in the infield. He was hitting .249/.306/.414 with nine home runs in 72 games prior to suffering a quadriceps injury.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Freddy Galvis: Nearing rehab assignment
Galvis (quadriceps) is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment within the next few days and is tracking toward an early August return from the 10-day injured list, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Baltimore has yet to formally outline a rehab schedule for Galvis, but he'll presumably report to Triple-A Norfolk and play a few games with the affiliate before being activated. While Galvis has been sidelined since late June with the right quad strain, Ramon Urias has taken over as Baltimore's everyday shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Freddy Galvis: Beginning rehab
Galvis (quad) will begin rehabbing in Sarasota shortly after the All-Star break and the team hopes to have him back by the end of July, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Galvis has been out since the end of June with the injury. The original timetable given was between one and two months, so the current hope is that he will be able to return on the earlier side of that estimate. Prior to the injury, Galvis was hitting .249/.306/.414 across 273 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Freddy Galvis: Lands on injured list
Galvis was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right quad strain Sunday.
The move comes as little surprise, as manager Brandon Hyde said the injury appeared to be relatively serious after the infielder exited Saturday's loss to Toronto. It's not entirely clear how long Galvis will be sidelined, but he seems likely to be on the shelf for the next couple weeks and possibly through the All-Star break. Ramon Urias was recalled in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Freddy Galvis: Slated for extended absence
Manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Galvis (quad) is expected to be out between one and two months, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Galvis was placed on the 10-day IL after being diagnosed with a right quad strain earlier Sunday. The injury is evidently rather serious, as Galvis figures to miss all of July and possibly a large portion of August. Ramon Urias and Domingo Leyba figure to see the bulk of the time at shortstop during Galvis' absence.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Freddy Galvis: Awaiting MRI results
Manager Brandon Hyde said following Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays that the club is waiting on the results of an MRI on Galvis' injured right quad, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
Galvis exited the game and was seen leaving the field in a cart. The skipper didn't seem optimistic, saying he's concerned that issue could be on the more-serious side. The results of the exam will ultimately determine the next steps for Galvis, but an IL stint appears likely at this point.... See More ... See Less
